1/Children & young people with autism and learning disabilities who could be living in the community with specialist support are languishing for years in Assessment & Treatment Units, some of them locked up 24/7 in isolation rooms, bec of severe financial pressure on Local Auths
2/ At the same time, private providers running these ATUs are raking in profits, being paid £452m per yr in what has become a market driven provision where autistic and LD people are little more than commodities
3/ This in spite of the fact that caring for them in the community would be far less expensive not to mention far better for the individuals concerned, their quality of life, their security and safety and their wellbeing

Hello, everyone! Let's start our #thread on #child #entrepreneurs, both in #Malaysia and abroad.

We'll talk about the success stories as well as how to foster their development 😊 Let's go! Feel free to add on to the thread with your own opinion and sharing.
Latest in Malaysia is the story of Ferris. Ferris merupakan usahawan cilik yang terpengaruh secara positif dengan siri Upin dan Ipin! It's good to see how entrepreneurship in an animated series can piqued children and their interest in entrepreneurship!

If you ask if there are more of such stories in #Malaysia, there are!

11 y.o Elisa Ahmad Sayuti and her friends got inspired by both their participation in Kelab Usahawan Cilik as well as seeing their parents who are also #entrepreneurs!

brand new Medium piece, but of an older spoken word piece (from 2012) about the rather old superstition that #LGBTQ people are somehow "contagious" - that's right, the #ROGD crowd didn't invent that! medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #queer #trans #transgender #children #health #psychology
please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it! also, it is not monetized, as I wanted it to be as accessible as possible. if you appreciate that I make essays like this for free, please consider supporting me on Patreon! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…

@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX Let's see, Van ... We're presently #5 in teen birth rate (per @HHSGov), & the state ed #abstinenceonly policy seems tailor-made to make us #1 there. In fact, the stats say almost one-in-five of US births to girls <15 were right here in Texas. #winning 1/
@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX @HHSGov In your quest for first, Van, you'll be glad to know we're #1 already for #uninsured people AND #1 when it comes to least #HealthcareAccess (incl. DC!). We do have a little ways to go on cost; we're only 6th #mostexpensive. Keep denying that expansion! 2/

Texas is almost there! According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation #KidsCount assessment, we're the 3rd-worst for family and community (#47/50) & 9th-worst for #childhealth. Isn't that exciting? /3

•Its #FPfriday and we will be talking about “Practical ways to introducing #adolescents and #youths to #sexuality and reproductive health info by Wemimo Adebiyi #Safespaces4youth #FPFriday #LifePlanningGIT .@Devcoms .@GetittogetherNG .@Healthcommng .@Notagaincampaig
It’s best to start talking with #children about sexuality early. You may ask, “How early?” For young children, you can start by teaching them the names of their body parts or asking if they know why girls and boys look different #FPFriday
When we talk to children about sex, it’s important to keep our conversation age appropriate #FPFriday

(1) Pedophilia in Hollywood is not new.

In an amazing book, "Selected by Extraterrestrials," by the late Bill Thompkins, shared a story of pedophilia happening in Hollywood in the 1950s.

High school-aged kids were having sex with 1st graders, and older.

Teacher's assistants...
(2)... were also having sex with kids of all school grades.

Teachers, too.

Pedophilia in Hollywood is multi-generational.

Grown ups abused, in turn, abused.

Father ~ son ~ grandson, etc.

Some of today's Hollywood kids are 4th generation in the Hollywood Pedo Culture ("HPC").
(3) The HPC was encouraged by, supported by and cultivated by the culture of #Democrats, #Marxists, #Progressives, #Socialists, #Globalists, etc.

They did unthinkable crimes with #children.

REALLY UNTHINKABLE, but if we are to #STOP this problem you HAVE to think about this.

a THREAD of all my essays related to current #transgender/GNC children debates. here is my most thorough piece: "Detransition, Desistance, & Disinformation" - it's a long read b/c this is a complex subject: medium.com/@juliaserano/d…
..."Transgender Agendas, Social Contagion, Peer Pressure, and Prevalence" challenges the notion that kids are suddenly being "turned transgender" these days...
medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #children #psychology
"Reframing 'Transgender Desistance' Debates" discusses recent research debunking the "80% desistance" myth, and demonstrating the very real harm of gender-disaffirming approaches...

Follow -up from my tweet to @guyverhofstadt & for all the 'doubters'
"Home Office faces legal challenge over UK child citizenship fees" buff.ly/2lUxjpt
#fbpe #citizenship #stopbrexit #immigration #children
These are not, as someone has complained: 'immigrats'flooding in, taking our benefits and driving down wages (sic). They work hard, have NEVER claimed a penny (tho lots of UK families in their street do...). They don't want to go home coz of the Hungarian Govt.
when you hear @sajidjavid going on about a 'compliant' attitude, etc, remember this. I am a pensioner, I earn little from my writing, but I BELIEVE children deserve to live in families. Not in cages. Not in deportation units.

F*cking TSA.

Passengers at airports across the country... are reporting a rise in TSA agents instructing them to remove their snacks and other food items... for a separate screening.
tinyurl.com/y73rkzv9
" It’s simply a recommendation issued by the agency last year... Screening supervisors at airports have the discretion to decide whether, and when, to demand that passengers proffer up ... for a solo trip through the X-ray machine."
Annnnnnnnnd why? What danger is it?
"According to England, the snack-removal recommendation is part of an effort to better detect explosives on planes, and to limit the number of bags that are flagged for special searches."

mmmmmhmmmm

good news: IJT has now made the paper I describe here, which comprehensively challenges the "80% desistance" myth, open access! medium.com/@juliaserano/r… #trans #LGBTQ #transgender #health #psychology #children
while I encourage you to read my essay about it, you can access that paper directly here: tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
and the second paper I described (by same set of authors) remains open access, and can be downloaded directly here: cfp.ca/content/64/5/3…

this piece begins w/500 words on: 1) transgender is spectrum, 2) trans sub-categories aren't discrete, 3) trans trajectories are varied (& all are valid), 4) trans & cis are not mutually-exclusive (due to questioning ppl), 5) therefore cisgender is not a stable category
honestly, I don't know how anyone could write a realistic #trans/GNC #children article without stating all this from the get-go. unsurprisingly, Singal ignores most, if not all, of this. which is one of the reasons ppl find his piece so distorted/biased...
great, apparently another mainstream outlet just published another "but desistance" op-ed...ugh. btw, since ppl have been asking, not a single mainstream outlet has approached me about writing an informed response to @TheAtlantic piece...

ICYMI @TheAtlantic kicked off Pride week with a new (but same as the old) Jesse Singal article. in thread #1, I discuss Singal's history of being anti-#trans: #transgender #LGBTQ
in thread #2, I live-tweeted the disingenuous/biased framework of Singal's article:
this 3rd thread is for all the people tweeting at @TheAtlantic "why don't you let trans writers like Julia Serano" write about this issue instead of Singal?"...

THREAD: earlier I tweeted about Jesse Singal's long history of writing fearmongering anti-#trans/GNC #children articles (+ also treating me & other trans women shittily): #transgender #LGBTQ #health #psychology
...Here I will "live tweet" Singal's latest Atlantic article, which is in the same vein as the others. If I was teaching a journalism class, I'd use this latest article as an example of how to write a highly biased piece that comes across as "fair & balanced" as possible...
...and since people unfamiliar with this subject will no doubt be unaware of all the misinformation & biases at work here, I'm gonna do math to it! I'm dividing it into 14 sections, each of which begins with its own header (aka, giant capital letter)...

The Atlantic has just published the umpteenth article Jesse Singal has written raising fears about #trans/GNC #children. He is not some unbiased journalist regarding this subject - he has an axe to grind, as I describe in great depth here:
juliaserano.blogspot.com/2017/12/my-jes… #LGBTQ #health
...Singal has purposefully slut-shamed & lied about me, + sicced social media mobs on me - he has a history of adding GG-hastags to his critiques of trans women (receipts in comments section). I know several other trans women who've had similarly bad experiences with him...
...regarding his journalistic biases on this matter, Singal outright ignored the following important historical points & trans perspectives in his 2016 "gender reparative therapy isn't so bad" article: juliaserano.blogspot.com/2016/02/placin… #LGBTQ #transgender #children #health #psychology

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.
